Man Pleads Guilty to Killing Half-Brother in Glen Burnie

A Baltimore man pleaded guilty to manslaughter Thursday stemming from an incident in Glen Burnie from last November, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Cornelius Keith Johnson, 25, admitted to shooting his half-brother, Andrew Johnson, in the parking lot of Mo's Seafood after discovering Andrew was romantically involved with the mother of Cornelius' 7-year-old son, reports The Sun.

Prosecutors did not seek a murder sentence, claiming a lack of evidence and a possible claim of self-defense. Cornelius faces a maximum 10-year sentence, reports The Sun.
